Spinal Procedure

If you need a procedure, I will discuss it with you in detail, including the procedure and what it involves. If you have private medical insurance I will give you the procedure code, which will be required by your insurance company to ensure authorisation for funding the operation. I will explain the risks and any possible complications, how long you will need to be in hospital for and what to expect after the procedure.


It may be necessary for you to attend a pre operative assessment clinic at the hospital. This will take place approximately 1 week before your operation and be arranged for you with a specialist pre assessment nurse.

The Reservation Team at the Priory Hospital will send details of your admission to hospital to you in a timely manner, prior to the procedure.


On the day of the operation you will need to starve from midnight prior to being admitted the following morning. You are however allowed sips of water until 6:30am. As I usually operate in the morning, you will be admitted onto the ward at about 07:00am. On admission both Dr Da Silva and I will see you in order to go through the consent and talk you through the procedure and what to expect immediately after the operation.

A post operative follow up will be arranged for you about 3-4 weeks following your procedure.


It may be necessary for a graduated return to work programme after your operation and this will be discussed with you at your post operative appointment.
